    It was 9 o'clock in the morning of April 19 when we left home to go to North Bus Terminal and hire a v-hire for Medellin. Sadly, there weren't any v-hires available because of the hectic travel schedule the day before, which was Good Friday, leaving us with no other choice but look for a bus that would take us to our destination, Kawit in Medellin.
